Report on Anti-Racism Initiative in the City of Middletown

Four hands of varying skin tones holding one another

Over the last year the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) has partnered with the City of Middletown on a comprehensive, wide-ranging anti-racism project. The project has three goals: to train town leadership and members of the Human Relations Commission on racism, to find out what the residents of color feel about racism in the city, and to begin looking for solutions to the current obstacles Middletown faces to achieving racial equity. The initiative included two anti-racism trainings for town leadership, four focus groups with town residents, and two community conversations with town residents. This report details the work that was done and gives recommendations for how the City can improve its climate to create a more inclusive environment for residents of color.
